Shining HIS light in the Hills
Mission Moments: October 2012
Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, spent most of the month of October delivering medicine, school supplies, Bibles, and of course, the Good News to the Peruvian mountain villages of Ranraucro, Hierbabuena and Chalhua. Here is his edited and condensed report from the field.
A beautiful view during Jamie’s trip to the Cordillera Blanca.
I arrived in Ranraucro and was kindly received by the Gonzales family. Brother Fernando Gonzales is still awaiting surgery, but the hospital continues to be on strike. I told him that I would continue to pray for his healing. The following day I visited with Francisco. He said that he continues to have leg pains, so I gave him a cream to ease the discomfort. While I was visiting him, he mentioned that he is continuing to read God’s Word and understanding it more every day. So praise God! In the evening we, and several others, had a blessed time of worship as we studied John 1 and 2, as well as Matthew 6 through 8. We ended with a time of praise and prayer. So praise God! I visited a number of other believers in Ranraucro during my stay to give some medicine to those in need, as well as to offer my prayers.
In Hierbabuena, I had opportunity to minister to many who are sick and suffering from all kinds of ailments. I prayed over one man, Saturnino, who had very bad stomach pains. Within 10 minutes of our prayer he was able to walk again and gave thanks to God. I ministered to a number of others who were suffering from things like leg pains to heart problems to epilepsy. I also visited with the Flores family in the nearby village of Coihuairanan to give them Bibles as well as some school supplies for their daughters. We were blessed with a time to read and study a few Psalms as well as a portion of Matthew. We ended our time together with praises and prayers. Before leaving for the village of Chalhua, I delivered more school supplies to two girls that I met on my last visit. They had both been abandoned by their fathers. The families of these girls were filled with such joy and gratitude, so hallelujah!
When I arrived in Chalhua, I was greeted by Alison, her grandparents Eleazar and Teresa, as well as Alison’s mother Taina and little brother Brayan, so hallelujah. They told me that they always remember to pray for Climbing For Christ and send their warm greetings and blessings. I visited with many other families too. During my visit, a number of people received the Lord as their savior. I also prayed for healing for many people.
I plan on returning to the village of Hierbabuena in November to deliver some more medicine to people in need. I will also visit Chalhua again and then move on to Chilcabamba for the last missionary journey of 2012. We need prayers to see many more souls come to the Lord.
